S2C Prodigy™ Cloud Cube™ Enables FPGA Prototyping of 1 Billion Gates Designs

S2C Prodigy™ Cloud Cube™ Enables FPGA Prototyping of 1 Billion Gates Designs May 26, 2015

Leading-Edge System Supports up to 32 FPGAs that Can Be Shared Among Multiple Users

SAN JOSE, Calif. – May 26, 2015 – S2C, a leading provider of FPGA-based rapid prototyping solutions, introduces the Prodigy™ Cloud Cube™ an enterprise-class, FPGA-based prototyping system. Cloud Cube can hold up to 32 FPGAs with a capacity of up to 1.4 billion gates in a single chassis that provides power, cooling, and remote control capabilities. The Cloud Cube system works with the entire Prodigy Complete Prototyping Platform including Prodigy Player Pro™ for partitioning, Prodigy ProtoBridge™ for linking FPGA prototyping to system-level simulation, and S2C's library of 80+ Prodigy Prototype Ready™ daughter cards.

"Our Prodigy Cloud Cube system allows engineering teams to take a huge leap forward in prototyping even their largest and most ambitious designs," commented Toshio Nakama, CEO of S2C, Inc. "This advanced technology offers the freedom and flexibility to simultaneously manage a large group of geographically dispersed developers utilizing different Prodigy Logic Modules. The result is a dramatic cost savings and greatly accelerated time-to-market."

Prodigy Cloud Cube

Cloud Cube provides unprecedented capacity and scalability with support of up to 32 FPGAs using a combination of Quad, Dual, or Single Prodigy Logic Modules. 16 engineers can simultaneously use any of the Logic Modules in a Cloud Cube with remote access through Ethernet. Different designs or multiple instances of the same design can run concurrently in a Cloud Cube. The powerful chassis system features:

  • Auto recognition of Prodigy Logic Modules

  • Auto detection of interconnection/cable setup between Logic Modules in a Cloud Cube

  • Auto detection of daughter cards installed on Logic Modules

  • 6 global clock sources to all Logic Modules with less than 200ps skew

  • Power on/off/recycle of individual Logic Modules

  • Unique tray design for easily mounting Logic Modules & daughter cards

  • Transparent and removable windows for easy access and monitoring

  • Flexible cable connections between slots on both sides

  • Access to each Logic Module directly or through a network switch

  • Runtime software for controlling and monitoring the Cloud Cube

  • Self-tests to isolate design problems from hardware or connection issues conveniently

"The addition of Cloud Cube to our Prodigy Prototyping Platform helps to fulfill our commitment to providing designers with a complete prototyping platform," added Toshio Nakama. "We'll extending this platform to include powerful cloud-based management software and multi-FPGA debug capabilities in the near future."

Prodigy Cloud Cube can be seen in action in the S2C booth #3108 at the 2015 Design Automation Conference (DAC) at Moscone
